Hello everyone!

I'm new to this forum and just have a quick question for you all.

Can I go on theme park rides after a transplant? I have had the kidney for almost three years now and I am just wondering. I would not be going on rollercoasters. Just things like simulators etc. Is this safe?

Any advice would be great. Thanks. :D

I have done all of the simulators at the theme parks (we live in FL), and have never had any issues. Nor was I ever told I couldn't go on them. If I recall, I was told no horseback riding though :-)

While I haven't done extreme stuff, I have done most things at Disney World including the flight simulator, and Big Thunder Mountain. I was never told not to and I haven't had any problems either. Where are you planning on going? Have fun!

Oh yeah...Big Thunder Mountain, I forgot about that one! I'm not a roller coaster person, so/but for me, this is a wild one, I LOVE it!

I was told I could ride roller coasters but I couldn't go horse back riding or mountain biking and preferably nothing that could put my kidney at risk. Oh and I forgot no martial arts or kick boxing. The only one I was worried about was the mountain biking because I love cycling. In fact, my transplant doctors were getting frustrated with me bc I was using my trainer after the first month post transplant.

There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative

I am a liver recipient. I have actually asked that question and was told it's fine to go on any ride and have fun! I have been on many Disney rides including the rock n roll coaster which I LOVED. I also do horseback ride and have been told that is fine.

Yeah I was told roller coasters are fine and have ridden plenty since my transplant. I find it really weird that you all were told no horseback riding though... I ride everyday and train horses as well. I show them and jump too. My doctors seemed to have no problem with it so it seems weird to me that you all have been told no...

Don't worry about the rides and simulators. I took a ride in a supersonic jet fighter after my transplant.

The most important thing to do is ask the doctors! I have noticed that Hilary you are a liver transplant recipient and a kidney transplant recipient's new organ is placed behind our pelvic bone for protection. If we were to have any damage to that new kidney we will once again need dialysis and/or another transplant.
